    Hi there! I am looking at WDW restaurants, and I am confused. On the menu, can enhancements be ordered separately or must they be accompanied by a primary dish?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Janie. We're so glad you stopped by!

     One of my favorite things about a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is all the incredible food I enjoy during my stay. There are so many amazing restaurants with diverse offerings and unique theming! I always try to visit a few new-to-me dining locations, and I love revisiting my tried-and-true favorites, like Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. 

     The answer to your question is, it depends on the restaurant. In most cases, ordering an enhancement item from the menu without first ordering an entrée is probably not an issue. In my experience, the restaurants are very accommodating. Whether you're traveling with a picky eater or someone who has an allergy, I've found the Servers to be very willing to do what it takes to make your visit magical. When your Server visits your table, simply ask if you're able to order an enhancement as a stand-alone item. The Servers are exceptionally knowledgeable, and will be happy to answer any questions you have about the menu. 

     Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app in preparation of your visit. It really IS magic at your fingertips! A friend and I found ourselves without dinner plans at the Walt Disney World Resort just last week. We opened the app, browsed a few menus, made a last-minute dining reservation and within an hour, we were sitting down to an incredible meal at The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

     I hope this was helpful, Janie. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
